San Diego City Works Press is accepting submissions for an upcoming anthology on FOOD.

Push boundaries-write on food as metaphor, memory, and culture. Explore thirst. Investigate hunger, power, poverty, and addiction. Linked to recipes or not.

Fiction and creative nonfiction: 3,000 words max.
Poems: 3 max.
Art and photography: 3 max.
Deadline: December 17.

Send manuscript and SASE to Food-City Works Press, 1313 Park Blvd., A-8, San Diego, CA 92101 OR e-mail to

Check out their website to see the work they have published thus far. Impressive work.

From their mission statement: City Works Press is a non-profit press, funded by local writers and friends of the arts, committed to the publication of fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and art by members of the San Diego City College community and the community at large. While our institutional home is San Diego City College, the collective is not limited to City College faculty and students but rather is comprised of members from all over the region.
I wish Orange County had such a press. While it's clear that the SD City Works Press champions San Diego writers, I don't know if an Orange County address would necessarily disqualify one from consideration for the anthology...I first noticed this call for submissions in an advertisement in Poets and Writers, a national resource for writers.
